companions in a u.s. air strike. >> this is further proof that al qaeda will find no safe haven anywhere in the world. working with yemen and our other allies and partners, we will be determined, we will be relentless, resolute in our commitment to destroy terrorist networks that aimed to kill americans. >> anwar al-awlaki's influence reached far beyond the village where he was hiding. he used the internet and phone calls to inspire others to attack western targets. the british airways worker from new castle, a convicted of plotting to blow up a plane. anwar al-awlaki was a u.s. citizen. here is 10 years ago praying at a washington mosque. he was considered the then a model cleric, even invited to lunch at the pentagon. >> we are now feeling like things are changing and the of 40's art -- the authorities are putting the muslim community under siege. this is an infringement on civil liberties. the once it will be affected will be the american muslims. >> into a dozen for, anwar al- awlaki -- in 2004, anwar al- awlaki moved to yemen. his group sent bombs described in printer ink cartridges

been used when the police have the genetic profile of the defendant, and therefore, they find a track and then they ask this d.n.a. was the scene of the crime and the track of the defendant can be compared with the track that they have found of the scene of the crime. because there's the scene of the crime and a lot of people couldn't be identified. they clearly have the genetic profile raffaele, and i asked myself if it was consistent with the track, and the answer is probably yes. but if the same had been done without the people, the answer would have been the same. this is the odd thing. it was a mixed track, and the number of unidentified people could have been identified with that track, that track, because it is a very confused track. there are a number of profiles in that track. now, if i ask myself then i'm going to answer yes, but even the expert can be seen in that track. >> that was the lawyer for raffaele sollecito, making a statement, as you can see, outside the courtroom. he and amanda knox have made very emotional statements proclaiming their innocence. in the murder ch

is talking about. we cannot confirm it. officials are telling us that they have heard the rumors. as you can imagine, they are desperately working to a telephone. the telephone system is not working well. at this stage, it is speculation. officials are frantically trying to ascertain whether or not they are true. obviously, people here would be delighted if it were true. the capture of colonel gaddafi himself would be very important. it would be hugely significant in the country. an official i spoke to said most of sirte was now in the control of the fighters loyal to the new authority. he said they were still -- he said there were still operations going on. as we heard, there's a confused picture in colonel gaddafi's home town. he turned this small village into practically a second capital. >> you will keep us up-to-date on whether or not colonel gaddafi has been captured. caroline hawley, thank you. in other news, the greek parliament is inching towards a final vote on another austerity bill. international creditors want to see tough money-saving measures before they give greece more cash.
patient so far. let us see the reaction thursday. but there is growing consensus among observers, columnist, and analysts, that the package of measures, even if it were to be agreed later tonight, it would not be enough to restore confidence in the market and address the deep structural crisis in the banking sector which is overlapping with the eurozone crisis and making this is so dramatic. >> is there one area which can change that attitude from the banks? for example, the bazooka affect what the bailout funds, the sheer size? would that be something that would do it? or, is it so desperate and views about what is best or writes that the markets are not really going to be satisfied with anything. >> one main concern is there is one kish -- keep issues leaders have not addressed, the cumulative effect of state austerity and a contraction of credit in the banking sector as the banks try to flight individually for safety and a 68 -- at 68 the economy. and the rest of the world being pushed into a recession it is a very serious and insufficiently addressed by all the measures that

. >> we are used to hearing about gun crime in california over the past decade. buddy -- but seal beach is a new name to many of us. >> it is. that is because it is one of those many relatively quiet communities along the beautiful coast of california. it is really off the beaten track a little bit. it is not any where the tourists go to. it is not that close to los angeles. it is not that close to the theme parks. there is a very large elderly community there. it is otherwise left alone. it is a beautiful sleepy sort of place. it is really not on the map. that is probably why people who live there like it, because it is so quiet and tranquil. >> do we have an idea of how things stand out and the narrative -- helping japan -- and thegs anpanned out narrative? >> it happened at a salon at a small mall, a small strip mall. they found nine people who had been shot, six of them initially declared dead. three were taken to hospital. two of those three people lost their battle for lac, leaving just one person in hospital who -- battle for life, leaving just one person in hospital. >> and nige

only gotten worse. the deaths of ever more gruesome -- deaths ever more gruesome. veracruz used to boast that it was mexico's say this city, but the empty beaches tell a different story. 35 bodies were left on the street in daylight, people who had been downed, tortured, and killed. empty homes have been boarded up after they were used to hide corpses. this is one of three locations where more than 30 bodies were found dumped in house is just a few days ago. it is part of an increasingly vicious battle that has been taking place in mexico. as you can see, the marines have been deployed on to the streets of a city that, until recently, was perfectly safe. many of those killed are victims in a tit-for-tat between drug gangs, but not all. dirty tricks and political cowardice means some innocent men are wrongly accused. speaking out is a rare and dangerous thing to do in mexico, but we met janet figueroa, who is prepared to take the risk just to clear her father's name. he was mechanic caught in the crossfire of a gun battle. janet says the state fabricated evidence that he was a cr

, but they are encouraging children going to school to use a different route and to avoid that footpath by that hot spot. >> are we talking about a accepts of crisis growing -- a sense of crisis growing again around tokyo? >> i think that would be overstating it. this is a surprising hot spot. another have been found, and there are reports of a third. we're talking about very small areas. one potential explanation could be where rain has washed off from a roof, so dust particles in the air have gathered. but what it does do is add to the general concern in japan, a general fear about contamination, scares about beef, about tap water, even about green tea. when you go into a supermarket now, there are labels on lots of the food telling you where the ingredients come from. some people are trying to avoid food from the affected region. so, as that general sense of concern that is going on as this nuclear crisis continues. >> roland, thanks very much for that. roland buerk in tokyo. celebrations among libya's interim government supporters as transitional national council representatives have announced that

situation. "we're getting reports as the police are using tear gas to disperse hundreds of people who are protesting in sidi bouzid. the reason they are on the streets is because a party in the election was eliminated in that town. election officials said that they were canceling seats won by a popular party because of campaign finance violations. this party won many of the votes which is why these people have come into the streets. it is and reminder of what started off this whole arab spring which began at the very end of last year with people coming out on to the streets to express their dismay. this is a democratic process in action. this was banned under the president's regime for more than two decades and a leader was in exile in london for much of that time. thousands were banned from tunisia. some people have said perhaps the fact that the party is now back in the country is the reason that they voted for them. other people are a little bit more concerned. the leader has absolutely said that there will be no change to the direction of the country. there will not be sure real l
